Be nice kids.

First of all, and I have to say this because of some recent comments, this is not a virus, and will not delete any files from your computer. In fact, ophCrack, the software we're gonna use is a very popular password cracker. Google it or Wikipedia it if you don't believe me.

This works for WINDOWS ONLY

This will crack all windows passwords up to 14 digits on a computer.
You need physical access to the computer.
You don't need to be logged in (that's what this is for).
It will tell you all user names and passwords on the computer.

Step 1: Get the resource

1. Go here:

2. Download the latest version of ophcrack live cd. To crack passwords on an XP computer select 'ophcrack XP LiveCD'. To crack passwords on a VISTA computer select 'ophcrack VISTA LiveCD'.

3.The software you download will be a CD image (.iso format). If you try opening this on a computer with a CD-Writer and CD-Writing Software (eg. Nero, Roxio, Record Now, or whatever you have) it will write that file to a CD.
So, make the CD

Why is this under &quot;Props&quot;?
I hope this can help you.last month my sister had the same problem,and then we solved it as follow: There is a way to reset the password and it doesn't involve reformatting and reinstalling&nbsp; Windows.<br /> I had found some useful website for you:<br /> 1)reset any windows password ( <a href="http://www.lostwindowspassword.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.lostwindowspassword.com</a> )<br /> 2)Reset windows 7 password ( <a href="http://windows7password-lndsmth04.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow">http://windows7password-lndsmth04.blogspot.com/</a> )<br /> 3)recovery windows XP password ( <a href="http://windowsxppassword-barika.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow">http://windowsxppassword-barika.blogspot.com/</a> )<br /> 4)create windows vista password ( <a href="http://windowspasswordkey.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow">http://windowspasswordkey.blogspot.com/</a> )
I have tried about 7 of these instructables to go around or reset admin. password and NONE OF THEM work.
ive tried at least 15 of them already and its just like you.&nbsp; NONE OF THEM WORK!!!!<br />
try this program called password-nuker, it resets your SAM file on boot
I know another two great ways!<br> If you have a bootable CD/USB drive,some password tools can be burn to it and you can boot your computer from USB to run the software, so that you can recover Windows password such as Windows 8/7/vista/xp/2008/2003/2000 password from USB.<br> Such as <a href="http://www.asunsoft.com" rel="nofollow">Windows Password Reset</a>, Offline NT Password, here I just list the simple steps:<br> Step 1: Download Windows Password Reset/Offline NT Password Editor<br> Step 2: Run it to burn to bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive<br> Step 3: BIOS setting of your locked computer to boot form CD or USB<br> Step 4: Recover Windows password after the software starts.
try my instructable. you don't need any software, just an account on the computer or the computer's network. <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-change-windows-passwords-without-logging-on/">http://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-change-windows-passwords-without-logging-on/</a><br/>
i read your instructable first of all the account needs to be an administrator also it dose not work for vista i dont really like it (no offence to you what so ever)
boom-man, the account does NOT need to be an administrator (at least not on the computers i've tried, i have no clue where you've tried) i never said it would work for vista, it says WINDOWS XP in there, just read it carefully. i really don't care that much whether you like it or not, any feedback is good feedback.
try harder, but you're right, most of them only work when you're already admin... This will work (if bootCD isn't locked down in bios) mine will work too I haven't seen other methods on here
<p>It's not possible to view the password but you can reset it:</p> <p>Firstly be aware - if you've encrypted any files with EFS encryption on the administrator account then these files will not be recoverable without the original password. This will ONLY effect the administrator account - it will not effect your personal EFS encrypted files (if you have any) so in most cases resetting the password is perfectly safe.</p> <p>1st method: If your account has administrator privileges you can simply reset the password<br /> Click start &gt; right click my computer &gt; manage &gt; click local users and groups &gt; users &gt; right click administrator &gt; set password and enter the new password twice.</p> <p>2nd method: If you don't have access to an account with administrator privileges then you'll need to download an offline&nbsp;<strong><a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/" rel="nofollow">windows password&nbsp;reset</a></strong>&nbsp; I believe is the tool i've used to do it in the past on XP.</p> <p>PS: there is a better method than both of these - if you've created a password reset disk when you set the password or after - but i don't think i've ever met anyone who has done this. The reset disk has the advantage of keeping your EFS keys in tact whilst resetting the password.</p>
hello! nice to have this tool,&nbsp; do you know if it works on windows 7?<br />
no, i do not know any thing about hacking.
AVG says this is an unwanted risky file. It did not load to CD but installed on download computer. This is a bad file to try to use.
and you must have downloaded the executable file. if you want to burn it to a disc you need the iso.
Hello again A.C.E. lol.
&nbsp;Hello again spartan 2209....<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;I'm sorry, i actually have no idea who you are..<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Everyone was doing it.<br />
Haha funny thing is I've seen you on other instructables many times :P
&nbsp;Yeah i get that =D<br /> <br /> I like this community<br />
of coarse it says its risky! its a password cracker stupid<br />
&nbsp;When you say for &quot;educational purposes only&quot; that means to use it for school right. :)
The program that I recommend is the Windows Password Key 8.0, it is very easy to create a<br /> recovery disk that you can use on any Windows PC.&nbsp; It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. Just an easy to use bootable CD/DVD . It can also be used on a&nbsp; USB Flash Drive. <a href="http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/" rel="nofollow">http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/</a>
Technically, every anti-virus scanner I use say something like this, &quot; Warning! Virus PSW.PSWdump has been found&quot; or something like that. <br />
It goes like this, PSW.PSWDump.at (Unclassified Threat)<br />
How do you get the windows vista startup to look like that?
Wow, are you forgetting the TINY detail that you have to be an administrator to download and install. Good try though.
I had my doubts as to if this would actually work, but my first comment turned around and bit me in the arse and i was totally amazed that it worked, but seriously it went to my head a little bit and i kinda went crazy(me and friend) at school with this. Found Head Admins PW All head teachers PW everyones, pretty cool if you ask me.
